Another flying activity being planned is a trip to Rutherford where the Great Tiger Moth Air Race 2014 will be starting and finishing at Rutherford Airport.  This event will be held April 25 and 26 2014,  Information can be found at tigerairrace.com
The Narromine Tiger Moth Group will be entering our local Tiger Moth aircraft in the event.
More activities will be announced as the flying group gets established and we are aiming for one flying related event each month through 2014.


FLYING GROUP

 The Flying Group sub-committee of Narromine Aero Club was established at the recent Annual General Meeting to foster increased interest in flying by Club members.
The enthusiastic sub-committee is Robert Heywood, Gavin Green and Murray Feddersen and they aim to increase participation in flying related activities.
So far, Robert, Gavin and Murray have discussed a number of activities aimed at providing participation opportunities for both flying and nonflying members.  These activities include
- Fly-away day trips to events such as a flying day at the Temora Aviation Museum
- Establishing a “Flyers’ table” at the aero club where aviators can meet to talk about flying
- Movie nights at the aero club to feature aviation themed movies
- Presentations on aviation subjects of interest
- CASA safety presentations
We are keen to introduce new flying members to the club and hope to contact Recreational pilots who have trained, or are currently training at Narromine to encourage them to join and participate in our activities as well as lapsed flyers who have trained or flown at Narromine.
Our plan is for activities to commence in the New Year with some local Narromine activities and start the flying activities once the heat of summer has passed.
Photographs here are representative of aircraft types owned by club members.  In future news, we will profile each of these aircraft types and introduce you to their capabilities and performance which can then be experienced during participation in Club activities.
If you have any thoughts or ideas, or would like to introduce a new flying member to the club, please call Rob (0427 890 550), Gavin (6833 9962) or Murray (0418 469 041) to reinvigorate our flying activities.
